4 stars How to describe the bizarre early prog rock of Marsupilami? Imagine if one of those mildly jazzy psychedelic outfits who could still come up with a decent hook now and again that were so rife in the era - like Colosseum (geddit?) or Audience - got melded with one of the darker prog outfits from the sinister side of the tracks, like Van der Graaf Generator, Gnidrolog, or Comus. Maybe you'd arrive at something which sounded even remotely similar to this, veering as it does between the dark intensity and furious violence of the Roman gladiatorial games to more gentle and pastoral themes such as Spring.
